On the issue of whether expressing is also protected, case law has confirmed that it probably is. But I get your point, and it is likely still a grey area.
Bottom line is the winery has a suitable space and chose not to let her access it. On top of this they were rude and offensive.
Her reaction may be over zealous it doesn't change the facts that the winery did not treat her with respect and decency.
You'll let her know it's her fault for wanting to get out of the house and not planning to be around a parents room while her baby might need a feed.
I hope the lady isn't a huber.
People get treated disrespectfully on a daily basis, I don't think that this person deserves special attention for treatment that she received for not feeding a baby. I actually think that a lot of this undermines the plight of normalising breastfeeding in public. Pumping and dumping is not the same thing as feeding and like anyone who has any kind of special requirement, if you know you will need to do it, you plan around it.

For a 4 month old, missing one pump and dump isn't going to adversely affect an established supply. I'm not for a moment saying she shouldn't have, but come on, this wasn't the same as feeding a baby. Had this happened to a ffer she would have been told to get over it and stop being so over sensitive.
